Luis Phillipe Tosi, PhD
(Full description>>)

Biography (more>>)
Phillipe is a mechanical and aerospace engineer working in the extreme environment robotics group at JPL. He obtained his masters and PhD from Caltech in 2015 and 2018, respectively, where his dissertation work focused on fluid-structure interaction instabilities, particularly for the design of robust flow energy harvesters. Phillipe graduated with a Bachelor’s in mechanical and aerospace engineering in 2009 and masters in aerospace in 2010, both from Cornell University. His work focused on the design of a passive attitude control system for a satellite-on-a-chip. Phillipe worked for Chevron Corporation from 2010-2018 as a Completions Engineer and Project Manager, and as a Research Engineer while pursing his PhD. His family moved to the US from Brazil in 1998, where he still tries to spend most of the year-end holidays.
